What we are looking for

Huntsbury Preschool is a special place, and we are seeking a special person with special talents as Centre Manager to lead our small, dedicated teaching team based at our Preschool in Huntsbury with the best views in the city.

The team aspires to develop further the local curriculum which boasts very calm and natural environments as well as to enhance the loving and respectful relationships between Kaiako, tamariki, and whanau. To achieve this the new leader will listen and act, taking on board existing systems and enhancing them, working alongside the children, teaching team, board, and the wider community.
“Bringing people with you” will be the mantra of the new leader.
